VICE-President Dr Sai Mauk Kham addressed a handover ceremony of a set of discussions compiled at the country’s first Union Peace Conference at Myanmar International Convention Centre-2 in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
In his address the Vice-President said that peaceful exchange of views on five agenda items at the five-day political dialogue demonstrated that trust has been built among stakeholder groups who have differences while the country is moving towards democracy.
Compared to international incidences of peace making, the country’s political transformation and peacemaking processes are working within a short period of time, said the Vice-President.
He cited successful implementation of the processes as the first reasons for the President’s attitude towards the concept that democracy is impossible without peace and internal peace cannot be achieved without democracy and the second reason for creating mutual trust through the new political culture based on negotiation.
He went on to say that discussions on topics at the UPC will be documented and brought into the future peace conference, hoping for better outcome to be produced in the time of the new government.
In his conclusion, the Vice-President called for making great strides in building a democratic federal Union that can ensure peace and prosperity and equality for further generations.
During the final day of the conference 15 representatives on behalf of seven stakeholder groups submitted a set of discussions on the given agenda items— political, economic, social issues, security and land and environment to the conference for approval.  The submission of four proposals to the conference and the handover of a set of discussions to the Vice-President followed.
